University partners and custom-built programmes

Summer Programmes are dynamic, innovative and creative department within King’s, with a focus on providing an outstanding student experience.

partners and alumni image 

We actively engage with institutions around the world, working together as partners to offer students creative and enriching summer experiences in the heart of London, abroad and more recently online. Drawing on our prestigious teaching expertise, we offer the following opportunities to university partners:

Summer School partner

This offers universities a tuition fee reduction and an application fee waiver on the Summer School. A Partner Visit Scheme is also available, which provides an accommodation bursary and networking opportunities for staff accompanying student groups.

Education Abroad courses in Cultural Intelligence

Designed for students from partner institutions, these summer programmes are immersive experiences about London, one of the world’s great cities. Using cultural excursions and activities beyond the classroom, they teach students how this city shapes the lives of its citizens through its institutions and power structures. English language instruction can also form part of the programme if required.

Custom-built programmes for visiting student groups

We can build bespoke summer courses for your students as part of a faculty-led programme or as a standalone summer experience using research-enriched teaching expertise from King's. We can help your institution shape summer options that are tailored to specific learning objectives, English language levels and subject areas of interest.

Blended programmes

Our dedication to international education and King’s expertise in education innovation put us in a leading position to adapt our programmes to provide flexible learning for students.  A combination of learning online followed by on campus delivery opens new opportunities for internationalised curricula and can help with personalising learning towards individual students.

If you are a professional working in international education and would like to enquire about building a programme for your students using King’s academic content and contacts, please get in touch with our business development team at summer@kcl.ac.uk.
